Lockers vs No lockers?

So I'm somewhat new to the Jeep world. But long story short; can anybody give a good argument about lockers vs no lockers, and explain why it would be good to spend that extra money? I'm not too sure how it works, but to my understanding TJ's don't have lockers other than Rubicons? I know they work by making both sets of wheels spin equally and all without sending power to the wheel that isn't slipping... Or something like that. Can somebody explain to me how lockers work too? Haha pretty much anything ya got about lockers, lemme know

The online catalogs of truck parts suppliers will also give some additional info. How do you plan to use your Jeep is the deciding factor.
